30 Days of [Blank] – Day 2
Woohoo! Not only is this Day 2 of 30 Days of [Blank], but it’s also my 100th blog post. Can’t you just feel the excitement of it all???? In honor of this very special occasion, I’m making one of my FAVORITE drinks today. It really all came together. This is a drink that I love on a hot day, and guess what? It’s hot today in Houston. This is a drink that I love with Asian food, and guess what? The weeone and I had takeout Chinese for dinner! This is a drink that my mother is counting on my blogging about, and guess what? I get to do it early in the 30 days before she goes off vacationing and living the life!
So, what you ask is it?
Here are some hints….
You take this….
Lemon Drop Martini
(aka Heaven in a Glass)
2 oz Vodka (citrus if you have it)
1/2 ounce Triple Sec
1 Tablespoon Splenda (or a tad more if you don’t like them tart)
3 Lemons, juiced
Superfine sugar for the rim of the glass
Decortive lemon peel for making your drink pretty
Shake all of the ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker and strain into a martini glass!
Makes 1 so double if you’ve had a day and quadruple if a friend is joining you!
If you drink too many…they look more like this….
This is my mother’s favorite cocktail. She’s the woman who taught me that “There’s never enough Vodka”!
